health care system. we invested in new technologies. we started reversing our addiction to foreign oil. we changed a tax code that was tilted to far in favor of the wealthy at the expense of working families. and add it all up, today our businesses have created 7.3 million new jobs over the last 41 months. we now generate more renewable energy than ever before. we sell more goods made in america to the rest of the world than ever. health care costs are growing at the slowest rate in 50 years. our deficits are falling at the fastest rate in 60 years. here in buffalo, the governor and the mayor were describing over a billion dollars in investment, riverfront being changed, construction booming -- signs of progress. so thanks to the grit and the resilience of the american people, we've cleared away the rubble from the financial crisis. we've started to lay the foundation for a stronger, more durable economic growth. but as any middle-class family will tell you, as folks here in buffalo will tell you, we're not where we need to be yet. because even before the crisis hit -- and it sounds li

of the technology and the wi-fi for computers to comply with the standards. we just do not have the funds. those funds will take away money for the kids, for their learning. we also know that 2% move across the nation. the idea that this has to be standard so that the few who do not have to adjust, that is outrageous that the many have to change everything. the kids have to work in groups to come up with an answer and they are all wrong. what do you do with that? i have two older children that grew up here and went to school here. i know they're not teaching what they learned. it is supposed to be at a deeper understanding of less information. >> you do not think they are as far along as you two older children were? caller: absolutely not. >> thank you for sharing your story. we are looking at "the washington post" for an education poll. most americans are sick of high- stakes standardized test reports. the well-regarded annual poll shows most americans do not like the high-stakes standardized testing that dominates education. have never heard of the common core standards that are being implemen

of interceptors and at this point we don't have the capability to intercept from china but the technology is progressing steadily and slowly so it may be beyond the ten year horizon. what does the dialogue look like and what does that act will dynamic as the numbers and keep the of the interceptors improved and is there a way that we can talk with china to keep the strategic stability without costing them to go higher and more sophisticated in their nuclear capability. >> i hope there is that it seeks to to dialogue and china has a long track record of resisting american and its own leadership in this dialogue area. let me be clear you have a good modifier but almost an arms race or an arms race response recall ten years ago rumsfeld articulated a concern defending the number of nuclear weapons under the moscow treaty, the strategic treaty defending that right number in part because it dealt with a potential sprint to parity by china. ten years later there was no sprint or parity so we need to be careful as we characterize what china is up to. in my assessment china is modernizing and div
